"Neil Young's 1973 live opus Time Fades Away has attained semi-mythic status among Young aficionados for a number of reasons, not all of them strictly musical. For one thing, Young himself has called it the worst record he ever made, telling a British journalist in 1999 that 'it makes me so nervous. The whole tour was a nervous experience. It wasn't really a lot of fun. I kind of got into documenting that vibe. It's not something I want to listen to a lot and when I listen to it I'm not that impressed.'
With an anti-endorsement like that, who could blame fans for being drawn to the album like cellphone camera-wielding travelers to a freeway wreck?"
any one else discovered this?"
"In one way, I like to think of Kathleen Edwards as the female Neil Young. OK, Edwards is prettier, younger, slimmer, and to my knowledge has only ever recorded one guitar solo of her own, while her male compatriot is of course famed for his massively extended live ones. But they share much commonality of spirit. It is her view of the human condition, and how she expresses it lyrically and in music, that puts Kathleen Edwards right up there."
